We only had drinks. Service was quick and friendly. Both bartenders engaged in conversation with us. Small but varied selection of drafts. Stone wall behind the bar gives it a unique atmosphere. It can get tight quickly if any group of people show up. I wouldn't suggest for the claustrophobic.

We have dinner here for two days (our first taste of American food), and i must say that everything was delicious. The price was good for what we have. The staff was friendly, quick and efficient. I like most the ceasar salad and the ribs, but the blueberry butter was the best!
